#11936 Chorizo 2022 Dolores McCormick

Medium-size, Male, Adult Retriever,
Energy Level 4

Energy Level 4 - Needs 1 hour of a mixture of off-leash playtime and or mental stimulation every day.

My name is Chorizo and I’m guessed to be a 1-year-old retriever mix. I’m a handsome, sweet, shy, happy boy and I currently weigh about 27 lbs.
I have been staying at my fosters home near Frederick, MD with two yorkies, a foster brother and sister
I play very nicely with all the dogs, size doesn't matter
Toys are fun and entertaining but soft toys don't last long
My foster mom thinks I still have puppy chew tendencies (love a good shoe to chew, yard shoes are the best)
I like to play outside, zooming around the back yard playing chase with other fosters; hope you have a fenced yard for me to show off my zooming
If you like to garden, I'll sit near you and watch, sometimes I help by taking a garden tool so you will move to stretch
I like to lay in the sun inside or out, have made myself a little shady spot in the dirt that foster mom says I blend in with
I am house trained; I have not had any accidents in my foster home
I have a crate with a nice bed, will go in but would rather not
I am shy, so please go slow with me
If you have read this far, I know you want to meet me, so go ahead and submit an application, I'll wait for you to be approved.

I am named after Mexican Chorizos, highly seasoned chopped or ground pork sausages used in Mexican cuisine. I'm a sweet blend of cute and happy and I’m in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so, apply today I won’t be available for long.

Chorizo 2022 Dolores McCormick Chorizo 2022 Dolores McCormick is currently being fostered in Point Of Rocks, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
